I was told that although those very early episodes will become public domain in the UK in 2014, it won't become public domain in the US due to GATT, and as such cannot be uploaded to the Internet Archive.

If TV that was public domain in the UK was allowed on here, trust me, I'd have a lot to upload (episodes of "The Larkins", "Emergency Ward 10", "The Arthur Haynes Show", "Citizen James", "Our House", and "The Rag Trade")

I think the series started 1963 and 1964.

The 1963 episodes become public domain in the UK in 2014 (at least, that's what I was told). But I was also told they will still be copyrighted in the US and cannot be uploaded here.

why did Robin Hood and invisible man series then get uploaded? I thought if the series is PD in the original country then it become PD. Unless it was copyrighted in US as well. We need to review GATT for PD in the original country.

I think a question for video cellar. He understands it more.
